About the Event
On the 1st of December our New Horizons Leadership Summit (NHLS) in Lund, Sweden kicks off! Centered around the role of circus as a leader on the frontier of cultural change and innovation, the summit seeks to bring together an international community of thinkers and doers shaping our collective future.
How does circus respond to contemporary urgencies, the shifting nature of work, new technologies and renewed questions about the responsibilities and capabilities of art in society? What strategies do some people already implement in their work that offer a glimpse into what the future might hold, and how we can navigate these big questions?
The summit will host seminars, workshops, discussions, performances, networking opportunities and an exhibition.
NHLS is part of the Swedish Arts Grants Committees Circus Programme, produced by Cirkus Syd in collaboration with an array of partners and associate partners including:
